Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so we start with a volume of gasoline that can be represented as the volume of a cylinder with diameter 30ft and height 60ft. If diameter is 30ft then the area of the base is 225\(\pi\) square feet, multiply by the height to get total volume of \(13,500\pi\) cubic feet. Then it's draining at 5 cubic feet per second, so the final expression is \(13,500\pi5t\) cubic feet. Yeah?
